A pale shadow that is imminently unworthy of even a raised heartbeat.

Cinema em Cena

Ao tentar recriar a ambigüidade do original, revela só a fragilidade de seu roteiro, que, pela (falta de) qualidade, poderia ter sido escrito pela própria Catherine Tramell.

Stupefyingly lackluster.

Like many sequels this is actually a remake, and it suffers from the law of diminishing returns.

San Antonio Express-News

Basic Instinct 2, with Sharon Stone once again in the seductress role, is a sordid tale of lying liars and pants on fire.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

Cinema Signals

Vamp or mind-vampire, a stylishly empowered Stone distracts from incredulity until an ill-conceived climax drowns it in a British harbor of excess miscalculation.

Another low in Hollywood's descent into virtual flesh-peddling ... Stone proves that she's still basically a "star" only to the extent that she strips.

In pretty short order, the entire film goes off course and sinks, taking its lead actress with it.

Stone is simply awful, replacing the sexy insouciance from the first film with a beady stare that would seem more appropriate coming from a dead codfish than a calculating nympho adept at playing twisted mind games.

the most gratifyingly God-awful guilty pleasure since Catwoman, another gem co-starring Sharon Stone

Sordid and ludicrous, it's a steamy stink-bomb!

The plot, already mired in nonsensical backstory, collapses with the late-inning introduction of a tired metafictional device (not to mention a wildly lunging Usual Suspects twist).

For many people, the only reason to see Basic Instinct 2 is to find out if Stone uncrosses her legs again. She doesn't.

Basic Instinct 2 has a stylish look and a few sexy moments, but the plot goes from confusing to implausible to absolutely ludicrous in the final sequence.

[This] is one of those guilty pleasures that, in your heart, you know you should loath but can't help being amused by the kitschiness of the writing, acting and direction

Movie Eye

...a relentlessly cheesy, over-the-top sexual thriller that has all the provocative luster of an inner thigh rash...[a] botched, stillborn psychological fable.
